Quoted from nocreditdot:

I have also done this to other classic Bally’s I have owned. Pinballlife sells all the necessary parts.

Ooohh, interesting. Love the flipper feel on classic Sterns.

@nocreditdot When you have a minute could you please link to the parts for the clueless new guy who recently splurged on 4 Bally's with linear setups?

Quoted from TheLaw:

Never thought aboot Stern in a Bally. Converted Ball linear to the ones in Vids guide but personally I don't recommend it.

Thanks!

Yeah, three of them feel fine to me so not gonna fix anything that's not broken.

Centaur, however, is due for a rebuild. Also: only 2 flippers so a cheaper guinea pig for sure.

I'm still a bit confused... I get that I use the same coil... but am I getting a rebuild kit and a left and right base plate and I'm good? Do I choose #6 or #6+#8 mounting holes for the plate?

Or do I need 2X full assemblies? Which I guess come with base plates?

Killer! Last and final question:

Do I want a Bally or Stern flipper bushing? Presume the holes line up and either would work, but just want to be sure
